The Arts Society Bath was established as the Bath Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Afternoon Group) 36 years ago. Over 200 members belong to a vibrant society where they enjoy an exciting and wide ranging programme of lectures, visits, and study days, learning about all aspects of the arts.

Lectures are usually on the first Monday of the month beginning at 1.30pm in The Assembly Rooms. The 2017/18 season runs from October to June. The first lecture, The River Through Artists Eyes with Alexandra Epps, is on Monday 9 October – it will be a visual journey down the River Thames, from the historical to the contemporary.

Arts Society lectures go through a rigorous selection process and speakers are experts in their fields whether in painting, sculpture, architecture, furniture or the wider arts including music. Members benefit from hearing nine outstanding lectures, plus can join study days and trips and will receive the Arts Society Magazine.

The Arts Society Bath welcomes new members and visitors who might like to try a lecture before joining. If readers would like to learn more about the arts in a friendly and informal way, The Arts Society Bath is an enjoyable way of doing so. Information is available from the membership secretary or online.
